ENnie Award Nominations

The ENnie Awards 2013 nominations have been announced. Congratulations to all!

The voting booth is here.

I’m pleased to say the Pelgrane Press has been nominated in eight categories. Gareth Hanrahan and Kenneth Hite gets the nod for The Zalozhniy Quartet  in the Best Adventure category, our very own Page XX has been nominated for Best Website. All We Have Forgotten (James Semple, Marie-Anne Fischer and Yaiza Varona), music for Ashen Starts gets a well-deserved nomination for Best Aid / Accessory.

You can listen to a sample – the theme tune – here:

Night’s Black Agents has been nominated for Best Rules (Ken and Robin), Best Interior Art (Chris Huth, Aleseandro Alaia, and Phil Reeves with art direction by Beth Lewis) , Best Game (Ken), Best Writing (Ken) and Product of the Year (everyone!)

Night’s Black Agents is my favourite game to run apart from my original AD&D campaign, and I’ll be doing another season of it later in the year, and it was the grabbiness and sustainability of the setting, the excitement of the writing and the quality of the mechanics which drew me in.

Here is a complete listing of all the nominations. It’s good to see so many entries from the British and Irish, or Team GMT, as we will be known.

ENnie Award Nominations

EnnieThe ENnie award nominations are in. Armitage Files has been nominated for best adventure, with Shadows over Filmland taking an honourable mention. And Jérome gets a richly deserved nod for his cover artwork on Rough Magicks. Last July in Page XX, Jérome let us into the secrets of his photomontage technique in creating this amazing piece of art.

I didn’t enter the books into specific categories, so I am not sure how they made their choices. Perhaps I should have placed Shadows more carefully (perhaps Best Setting, or Best Art , Interior)

Due to my cock-up over release dates, Mutant City Blues didn’t get the chance to be nominated this year or last.

Brennan Taylor gets a Best Writing nomination for How We Came to Live Here, a game which I had feared would slip under the radar. This will give it a much needed boost.

Jason Morningstar, who wrote The Black Drop for Pelgrane has demonstrated himself to be multi-talented with an art nomination for Escape from Tentacle City.

Cublicle 7 is festooned with nominations, including an amazing four for Best Product, and I tip them for a silver or gold in Best Product for Doctor Who, though they might have to wrangle their potential voters a little if they are feeling mercenary.

At this point it becomes a popularity contest, so the big publishers will probably take the metal, but it’s very pleasing to be nominated.
